A snapshot: Someone steps on a stick. No one jumps. Not even Euclid. Four loaded-for-bear Guardians and not one of them looking head-height. Auburn, Euclid, Yarrow, Kass, spread out through a stand of pines. Geomag Stabilizers buzz faintly in thick needles. Blue-green fog from a hazy afternoon reflects in a still, reed-lined pond.
“Got one,” Kass says.

“That’s five, two, four, and another two.” Yarrow facilitates. It’s a competition, but at the same time it doesn’t matter. The game is the count. The point is the four of them, middle of nowhere, counting birds.
Black wings flash away. Everyone sees it and takes in the stillness and the movement in their own ways. Quiet chuckles, quiet thoughts. Even Ikora wouldn’t hear all of them as the fond stillness is passed around. Geese flying overhead stay in formation, ragged patches of smooth passage.

A little somethin’ of Yarrow I’ve had kicking around in my head the last couple days. I couldn’t find ANY refs i needed so i kinda had to just wing it with the pose, had to color a bit differently to preserve what’s left of my markers, but despite all that I’m pretty pleased with it…

his sister is a weaponsmith so I designed him a custom chainsaw + katana roller. thanks to the tank-tread design he can also stand on top of it and ride it around not unlike how sensei can with his roller.
